Answer:

#(2p+5)(3a-2)#

Explanation:

#"separate the terms into 2 groups"#

#6ap +15a" and " -4p-10#

#"factorise each group by taking out a "color(blue)"common factor"#

#color(red)(3a)(2p+5)" and " color(red)(-2)(2p+5)#

#"putting this together gives us"#

#color(red)(3a)(2p+5)color(red)(-2)(2p+5)#

#"take out the common factor "(2p+5)#

#(2p+5)(color(red)(3a-2))#

#rArr6ap+15a-4p-10=(2p+5)(3a-2)#
